Hey remember last year when I quickly mentioned those beauty samples? I was quite good in using up some of them. However I am not so big in wearing make-up. I always feel like a porcelain doll when wearing it. Every once in a while I give it a try but in the end I end up wiping it down before leaving the house. However I still collect all the sample falling off of those girls magazines.
So what to do? I figured before buying one of those bb creams or colored day creams (those I actually use for special occasions) I could just give it a try and mix my samples together.
The how-to is simple: empty all make-up samples in an empty container, mix in some moisturizing cream, stir well with a toothpick and tada… your are done!
I’ve used it once. It is still a bit heavy on the make-up part and I think I add a bit more moistening cream but over all this is a good way for me to
a) use those samples
b) have a make-up-day-cream at hand
c) saving money
d) not wasting but recycling
Now dermatologists might add that you can’t just mix stuff together. Well I can. I do have a sensitive skin but no problem yet. If I might, I go back to store bought stuff or I run out anyway…
What have you been recycling lately? Let me know I am always on a look out.
